Episode Details

Inspired by its "top-down" model for growth, the world's largest democracy has started taking its cues from China, one of America's economic rivals. It's a mindset that led to Modi's election in 2014, and has signaled the developing economy's desire for real change. Now, it's up to the U.S. to determine how to best secure its interests as India asserts itself on the world stage.
